50% Descend/ 50% Climb
ENVE made this rim specifically for the cross country racer who requires a no compromise RACE wheel that won't let you down when you reach the top of the race course.
Based on feedback from Sho-Air and Cannondale Factory Racing Teams, ENVE'S M50 features a ride quality defined by vertical compliance that improves efficiency over rough terrain and prevents fatigue caused by hard hours in an unsuspended saddle. The M50 won't make the effort hurt less, but ENVE promise your effort will be rewarded more than ever before.
In combination with the built in DT Swiss 240 hubs absolute jewelry wheels arise, who leave nothing to be desired.
ENVE MSERIES - The Next Generation of Mountain Wheel Technology
Passion. It's what led ENVE down a path less traveled to face the ultimate challenge...to create a carbon fiber mountain bike rim. However lightly traveled and challenging that path has been, their vision of a stiffer, stronger, and lighter mountain rim created a new world where carbon is now the gold standard for mountain bike wheel performance. Since their first carbon mountain rim model was launched in 2007, carbon technology has evolved, and so they have...
Introducing the ENVE MSERIES
The ENVE MSERIES ushers in a new era of carbon mountain rims that are ride tuned for discipline specific performance; and plays host to new ENVE technologies that promise a ride experience second to none.
Each model in the ENVE MSERIES is designed with a specific rider profile in mind. In the past ENVE had classified riders into three general categories in a one size fits all XC, AM, and DH designation that worked well for some but left others wondering where they fit. The ENVE MSERIES features four completely new models that classify riders by the ride style that they most closely identify with. Each rim model is designated by a style ratio that represents a rider's inclination towards descending vs. ascending. M50fifty (50 % Descend/ 50% Climb) M60forty (60 % Descend/ 40% Climb) M70thirty (70 % Descend/ 30% Climb) M90ten (90 % Descend/ 10% Climb) Tuning each rim to a specific application meant creating a rim that is fittingly light, stiff, and durable for its intended application. As such, each rim in ENVE's next generation MSERIES is lighter and stiffer than its comparable first generation predecessor. Developing laminates that cater to a specific ride application is only part of the story. Each rim is optimized to perform within a range of specific tire widths that are most prevalent for the intended application. By refining the interface between rim and tire they create more precise and predictable handling characteristics and thus a more efficient wheel system.
Impact Resistant Construction
A no compromise requirement of the MSERIES mountain rims was increased impact toughness. With a reputation built on durability ENVE have worked tirelessly to up the ante in terms of rim durability and are proud to say that they have taken rim strength to the next level. The MSERIES features a proprietary rim shape and construction that mechanically improves durability and impact resistance across the board.
BEADLESS TIRE RETENTION
The key to a good tubeless system is a tire and rim that works harmoniously to create a seal at the tire bed of the rim. By eliminating the "hook" from the top of the rim sidewall, ENVE are able to produce rims to more precise dimensions, allowing riders to run lower tire pressures without the risk of unpredictable air loss or pinch flats.
